This year it was to learn 3bld and make an official attempt, made it with 15 seconds to spare :D For 2018:

mbld: Be prepared to make a legit, official 6 cube attempt by the end of the year. I have a long way to go.

3x3: My goals are usually either short term (get at least one PB at my next comp) or nebulously longer-term (get sub-10 "some day"). But I think I could be flirting with the potential for an official sub 20 average by the end of next year, given my current progress.

Alrighty :D
2x2: Eh maybe practice a bit, learn HD if I get into it
3x3: Get! Better! with! Roux! (assuming I switch fully from CFOP). Maybe sub-17?
4x4: Practice a bit. Maybe get closer to sub-1
5x5-7x7: Maybe do a few solves.
OH: Meh. Do a few solves maybe.
3BLD: Practice.
3x3x5 Fisher: If I'm still interested in this, maybe get to a sub-3:30 global average?
Changing my goals:
2x2: Learn HD and get fast with it!
3x3: Learn full CLS and switch to M-CELL
MBLD: I'm going to go big, increase my PB of 2 points to 10!

This is hard for me. All of 2018 is three times as long as I've been cubing (started 2017-08-28).

2x2: be sub 10 (am sub15)
3x3: sub 25, maybe? At least sub30, (am sub40) learn PLL, learn some OLL (currently 3.6LLL)
4x4: learn Yau, be sub2 (currently sub 3:30, I have no idea what a good/realistic goal is)
5x5: buy one, solve it
6x6 and 7x7: maybe buy them, if yes, be fast enough to meet a comp time limit.
OH: solve it without breaking my fingers, as soon as that works, sub 2:00 (comp time limit)
feet: meet comp time limits, maybe participate at Mental Breakdown
blind: official success (maybe at Mental Breakdown)
Megaminx: sub 5:00 (my current and only Ao5 is 7:18)
Pyraminx: learn LBL (currently I force the 2-edges-flipped case), be sub 14 (currently sub20)
Clock: actually time a solve, meet comp time limits, participate at Mental Breakdown
Skewb: learn fingertricks, start on Sarah's Intermediate, be sub 20 (am sub26 or something)
Square-1: maybe buy one, solve it
FMC: maybe participate at Mental Breakdown, if yes, be better than Brandon Mikel (excluding his last comp)

Generally, a lot depends on whether I'll go to Mental Breakdown. So far it's the only comp I know that will be in reasonable distance. But of course it isn't your usual beginner-friendly nxn comp. Planning to go there might me motivation to practice feet, clock and blind.
